  • If you add a class during the Drop/Add Period, make sure that you get the syllabus immediately so that you can catch up on notes and assignments missed.
  • If you have questions about your schedule and or academic plans, stop by your assigned Advising Office.  You can find your assigned advising office by looking a the Advisor Box on your HUB Student Center, or you can use the Undergraduate Advising Directory.

Do you know where to find your Final Grades and Grade Point Averages for your major?

Graphic on which resources to use to find your grades and grade point averages for your majorYou can find your semester final grades via your HUB Student Center – My Grades page.

Look at your Unofficial Transcript, via your HUB Student Center, to see all of your UB semesters.  If you earn Dean’s List, you will see it noted for the semester in which you met Dean’s List criteria.

If you have a Grade Point Average below a 2.00, then you will have a Grade Point Deficit.  Refer to your Unofficial Transcript, and look at the Points column. You will see GPD (Grade Point Deficit) and a number below.  This tells you how many Grade Points you are below a 2.00 Grade Point Average.
